People are so sick in large part because they do not cook, healthy food from scratch any longer (look into the Weston A Price society https://www.westonaprice.org/)
It is close to impossible to buy healthy foods, or to find them at a restaurant. You have to take real foods as your starting point and spend an hour or two a day cooking.
That is unless you have the money to hire a cook. 🙂
My Garmin Vivosmart HR+ says that I burn quite a few calories dancing around the kitchen for that hour. It’s good exercise and I often listen to podcasts or audio books while in the kitchen. I have also been know to stretch or practice martial arts forms while waiting on something to finish up.
Today was a “cook day”, with 4-5 hours in the kitchen.
This was dinner.
Right bowl: Asparagus soup with a dollop of homemade sour creme
Left bowel: Italian Sausage and kale soup (no Cathy I did not raise nor butcher this hog, I’ll leave that to you)
Plate: Almond bread and butter. Hand crafted crackers, topped with avocado and kale pesto. Kimchi. Roasted buttered pecans
There was more later, but I don’t want to write a tome here.
Two more lessons learned from the school of hard knocks:
1.) Get on a good nutritional supplement program, and that includes taking care of your gut. This is as important or more than all of the above. Our soil is depleted and you can not get everything you need from your food.
2.) Lastly put your body into nutritional ketosis (keep your insulin levels very low by diet) You are likely to remain overweight if you don’t do this.
If Americans did this. this country would look like a different planet the change would be so noticeable
Spread the word. Eat like your great grandfather and great grandmother ate, and you will be a heck of a lot healthier! That prepackaged food is adulterated folks. If food is in a box, you should throw it in the trash.
